Ted Talk Tuesday — the joy of surfing in ice cold water

We are big fans of surfing here at go-do.it and try to get in as often as possible. But this might be a bit crazy even for us!

Chris Burkard is obsessed with the hardest, coldest places to surf. While most people think of sunny beaches and golden sands this talk concentrates on the isolated frozen solitude. Chris searches for the hardest places in the world to surf.

“Anything that is worth pursuing is going to require us to suffer, just a little bit,”

He feels its his personal crusade to show the public a completely different side to surfing. He hopes to inspire others to lead a life less ordinary.

“For most people, surfing evokes sunny sand and warm, blue water in tropical locales”
